My Bio
Artist, Musician, Mother (of twins), Daydreamer, Lover.

I have a degree in Graphic Design and work in the Smoky Mountains of N.C. for a regional newspaper and National magazine as an advertisement designer. In addition, I freelance for other local magazines and commission random artworks for friends and family.

I enjoy art in every arena, especially illustration, painting, print making and typography. I truly enjoy drawing, painting, sculpting and photography, though none of them are necessarily my forté. I am very open minded and love shooting and modeling for photographs on occasion.

I am a Zumba instructor, and I teach 5 classes per week, I love yoga and meditation, I love to read and learn, I love to explore nature, and I love to love.

(and all that's the tip of the iceberg!)

Favourite Visual Artist

Hey guys :) Some of you may have noticed my photos popping up elsewhere...yes, that's me. I just decided that I wanted to have separate accounts for my more traditional art, and my more 'fun and free' personal stuff, so I am working on a transition. Feel free to pass me a note if you'd like to follow me on my second account! Thanks for all of your support on my work, it means the world.

Hey everyone, this is my first dA journal entry and I just wanted to take a second to talk about using the arts as a form of therapy. We all probably need it. Therapy, that is, but art too. art/ärt/ Noun: 1. The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture,...: "the art of the Renaissance" 2. Works produced by such skill and imagination. "expression" - "Creative" - "imagination" - all things that can literally take OVER our minds and bodies if we let them, but can also be used as a means for therapy and coping with the good and bad parts of human exist
